Dense, in a good way

Gabe says the lack of urban density is one reason it’s so hard for some businesses to thrive.

“If you are going to open a new retail, food, or bar business in Urban Worcester you better be good. You better be really good. Destination good. You can’t afford to be anything less. Most of your potential clientele doesn’t live right around the corner. Most of them are going to have to get in their car, circle the neighborhood a few times to find a parking spot, walk a couple blocks, maybe obtain a designated driver or a cab. Long story short they are going to have to go out of their way.”

And, along the way, he takes a couple of nice “you’re doing it wrong” digs at local businesses with bad business plans.
